My daughter takes class at DDA Dance Academy. The staff is exceptional and truly helped to make her a better dancer. More importantly, they instilled in her a love of dance as well as helped her gain confidence. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with a smile. I would highly recommend DDA Dance Academy to anyone looking for their child to grow both as a dancer, but as a person as well. n

My daughter was a part of this school for the 2012-2013 season. She really loved her teacher and the assistants. Everyone is very friendly and they know every child’s name which is impressive. The children I saw there each week would leave with huge smiles. I really appreciate how in touch with the parents the school is, there are constant updates emailed, they post on Facebook, talk to you in person and are always available to you if you have questions via email or phone. If you are looking for loving, talented and dedicated teachers, quality instruction and a continuous smile of triumph on your child’s face then I highly recommend DDA.

Wonderful dance school. True focus is on the kids. Miss Deena and the entire staff is delightful. The recitals are well organized and my kids enjoy the weekly classes. DDA also spends a lot of time on social media..updating parents via facebook, awarding/featuring dancers of the month … we really enjoy this school in comparison to some other schools in the area! WE LOVE MISS DEENA!!!

Deana is an incredibly gifted and intuitive teacher, encouraging and supportive! I’m so fortunate to work with her and learn something new about movement and form every time we work together. Her grace and talent knows no bounds!

My son loves to dance so I was looking for a place that offered an all boys hip hop class! I found just that at DDA Dance Academy. My son absolutely loved the class and his teacher Miss Erin!! They just had their recital and the boys were a hit!!! It was an awesome experience!! The owner Deana is the nicest person and so is Carey who works in the office. They have so many classes to offer for all ages and many types of dance….you should really check them out!

Such a wonderful dance academy!! I’ve watched my daughter grow and develop into a beautiful dancer, not to mention all the great friends she has made and the self esteem that she has gained from DDA! The friendly and talented staff and affordable prices are also a huge plus!! I’ve recommended DDA to several of my friends and family and can’t wait to continue to see my daughter have such a great time!

My daughter Olivia has been dancing at DDA since it began 4 years ago. We are more than satisfied with the classes, teachers and the recital each year is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Miss Deanna’s academy. If you are looking for a dance school for your son or daughter, your search is over!

The teachers are amazing and so good with kids. My daughter can’t wait to go to dance every week. The facility is clean and the academy is very organized. Best decision I made for my daughter and will be enrolling my other daughter this year.

Deana is sooo sweet and good with my 3 year old daughter. She truly cares and connects with them very quickly and easily. She has a wonderful way about her that draws the kids in and makes her a great role model for impressionable souls. I saw a difference in my daughter’s demeanor immediately! I’m not kidding! Its as if she feels more confident, proud, and grown up already—and its only been two classes!


Deana is a talented and amazing teacher! I have been taking (adult 🙂 Pilates with Deana for a couple of years. She is excellent at addressing her students with the right imagery and helps me at every class to achieve a better sense of my own body awareness – key to my personal success as her student.Deana’s ability to incorporate her extensive dance background into her classes makes for an exciting and challenging experience and she always seems to create a perfect workout – hitting all of the right places a woman might want to strengthen and tone.I have also recently started to take Deana’s Barre Fitness class and I LOVE it! I just can’t believe it took me so long to try it…..Thanks, Deana!!
